To the Reader
Please read the Scripture passage carefully and prayerfully and then the notes. Take time to look up the Scripture references given in the notes. They are an integral part of the meditation and the extra time spent will be abundantly recompensed.

See this as more important than your daily food – it is! Our spiritual lives are far and away more important – and we can completely trust that God will provide our daily needs ‘seek ye first the kingdom of God’. How critically important it is to start the day with the Word of God – spiritual food – before the activities and stimuli and influences of the daily routine take over – indeed to provide a spiritual influence to help us to do all those things as to the Lord Jesus.

The Bible is a large book which we can never fathom, but it is essential to get all its instruction – to read the 780,000 words in one year would require reading more than 2000 words each day; this scheme needs you to read just over 400 words each day (that is about 16 verses each day – less than an average chapter. The commentary is just over 200 words each day). If we only read the New Testament routinely then we limit ourselves to a quarter of what God has told us.

The scheme is by Jean Koechlin of France. He read the Bible daily with his nine children, and recorded his remarks for the help of others. This is a unique aid to ‘rightly dividing the word of truth’.
These notes originally appeared as “chaque jour les Écritures” published by La Bonne Semence, Valence, France. In sending them forth in the English translation we would echo the words of the author: “Never forget that ‘All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished to all good works.’ (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). May the Lord grant us in reading His word to experience and progress in these things with Him.”

It covers the greater part of the Bible (some genealogical sections and ones of moral embarrassment are omitted by brother Koechlin) with a daily Bible reading and commentary. It will be an aid to all who prayerfully read them to gain an overview of the entire Bible.
(*To aid readers of the English edition who have English as a second language, verbs which end in ‘eth’ have been modernised to ending in es/s, e.g. remaineth : remains. A few other small changes have been made such as doeth : does, hath : has, saith : says, unto : to, mine : my. ‘Thou’ verb forms are unchanged. Nothing has been done which could be termed translation or interpretation.)
